Stop Motion Animation for Children

What is stop motion animation? Stop motion animation is animation that is captured one frame at a time, with physical objects that are moved between frames. When you play back the sequence of images rapidly, it creates the illusion of movement.

In this class kids will have a chance to create their own animated short film. They will create their own characters with sculpting clay and will then learn how to photograph, edit and render their own videos. At the end of the month kids will get to take their sculptures and videos home on a flash drive.
